I lost myself on a cool damp night. I gave myself in that misty light. Was hypnotised by a strange delight, Under a lilac tree. I made wine from the lilac tree. Lost my heart in its recipe. It made me see what I want to see, And be what I want to be. But I think more than I ought to think I do things I never should do I drink much more than I ought to drink Because it brings me back you… Lilac wine, Is sweet and heady. Like my love, Lilac wine, I feel unsteady, Like my love. Listen to me… I cannot see clearly. Isn’t that he coming to me Nearly here? Lilac wine, Is sweet and heady. Where’s my love? Lilac wine. I feel unsteady, where’s my love? Listen to me… Why is everything so hazy? Isn’t that he, or am I going crazy? Lilac wine, I feel I’m ready for my love… Feel I’m ready for my love.
